In response to the cancellation of Chris Brown's European tour, promoter and people at his label announced that they are trying to work on "possible re-arranged dates." Thus, concergoers in the continent are advised to hold onto their tickets.

The "With You" hitmaker was forced to scrap a number of dates in Europe after he was denied entry to fly to the continent. "SORRY to all the fans in europe!!! My tour is cancelled," he apologetically wrote on Twitter. "I'm pretty sure ya'll know. My entry was denied in your country. I love you. SORRY!!"

At that time, report suggested that his status as a felon following his altercation with Rihanna in early 2009 becomes the reason of his visa rejection. And it's all true as a spokesperson for Britain's Home Office told Reuters, "We reserve the right to refuse entry to the UK to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offense. Public safety is one of our primary concerns. Each application to enter the UK is considered on its individual merits."

In line with the statement from Britain's officials, Sony Music stated, "Due to issues surrounding his work visa, the Ireland and United Kingdom leg of Chris Brown's Fan Appreciation Tour has been postponed. Chris looks forward to performing for his fans abroad in the near future and thanks them for their continued support."

i cant belive they are not actually letting him in, i was meant to be going to see him aswell, they let lil wayne and 50 cent in hwo have both been convicted of crimes and been to prison numerous amounts of times, but becasue chris did one thing, which was bad they are not going to let him in, its sooo annoying, well i hope he makes it in because of all of his fans who were so excited to see him ! however there are many people let into this country (terroists, and all sorts) but they wont let someone who has served their time in, ? i think the home office seriously need to consider this and most people agree. they are worried about public safety pffft, whats he gonna do jump off the stage and start harrassing people ? i think not, he will be guarded(body guards) and so will the people of the concert. well whatever happens, I LOVE YOU SOOOO MUCH BREEEZYYY !!!, i hopeeee you can come in, and i am speaking on behalf for every fan we will support you until we see you, most people have took your side anyways, so dont worry. please try and come in the UK, and i'll see you at your next concert 02 b'ham hopefully ,WE LOVE YOU BREEEEEEEEEEZIIIII and cant belive what theyve done to you, we are supporting you all the way. i (L) you chrissss. and to the home office you really need to consider the 'real' problems of the world ;)

"Public safety?" WTF does a fight betrween a 19 yr old and a 20 yr have to do with UK publicsafety? This is just grand standing on the UK officials side. They need to focus on the fallingERUO & constant threat of terrorism. I'm confused tho, the allowed convicted felon RobertDownery Jr in to promote Sherlock Holmes gee this smells like RACISM TO ME! Theyallowed felon child ****** Romine Pollaski in their country but a 21 yr old who had a personalfight with a person that struck him 1st rises to the level of UK "Public safety"? They could have told Chris last week why wait until the night his fans are gathered at a sold out venue to deny him. RACISM at its very BEST! SO DO THEY LET CHARLIE SHEEN AND LIDSEY LOHAN IN. THIS IS JUST LIKE MICHAEL VICK AND BEN ROETHLISBURGER WITH THE NFL. VICK CAN'T BE A STARTER. I BLAME “CNN” AND “HLN” AND THE CLEAR BIAS AND RACIST ONE SIDED NEWS REPORTING!!!!!! COMPARE THE MEDIA'S COVERAGE OF THE TIGER WOODS STORY AND THE ROGER CLEMENS SEX TAPE. ROGER CLEMENS AND BARRY BONDS. THE WHITE MEDIA IS RACIST. Look at the media’s coverage of Floyd Landis and Lance Armstrong. They told Floyd Landis to stop snitching!! Not the media. I thought the media loved snitches? Unless they do this for literally every celeb with a criminal record, I smell a double-standard “KKK in the UK”. At least be consistent.
